Sparkling wine heaven: Arunda, Europe highest cellar
Located in Mölten, a small village set on a peaceful plateau at 1200 meters above the sea level, Arunda is the highest wine cellar in Europe: fifteen kilometers north of the renowned wine region of Terlano and twenty kilometers from the cities of Bolzano and Merano, where you can breath the quite atmosphere of a small mountain village.
This small company was founded in the far 1979; a small production (under seventy thousand bottles) take place passing through the finest techniques of Classic Method. Technical innovations and love for detail along with furnishing and atmosphere are the main feature of this amazing cellar: wine racks on which the bottles rest upside down at 45° angles waiting for "sboccatura"*; a small production of bottles between which various years cuvées are waiting for their balancing and full maturity; as well as some barriques to allow to a certain portion of the wine, designed for special reserves, to develop more structure and body.
Great artisan skills and dedication to their products that you can only find in a family-run cellar.
